Well, as some of you know, we are getting ready to move back to Utah for Ben's new job. The expected move date was August 4th for the kids and I, and then Ben was going to pack the moving truck at the end of August and follow us down to start his job as a Nurse Practitioner in Logan. We've had a couple delays though, so we are pushing our move date back until about mid-October. Hopefully by then, we'll have sold our house, found something else in Logan, and will be ready for the big change. We're glad to be able to have a few more months up here in Oregon. We love it out here. The biggest thing pulling us back to Utah is family, which we miss way too much to stay here. If anyone knows of someone looking for a house to buy, we live in a great place, in a great ward. We do get to go back for a family reunion next week though. We're excited to see all of Ben's family and spend some time with them.
Ben and I have had some fun with our kids after having a busy vacation and an even busier time getting our house ready to put on the market. When we got home from Utah, we went to the Bruno's house to pick up a surprise for the kids. A new kitty! They were so excited to get a baby kitty and she has been a good sport with them always wanting to hold her. She's pretty cute. Her name was Tiger but that was before the Bruno's found out she was a girl, so we changed it to Tiger Lilly. The girls call her Tilly for short. It's been fun having a little kitty again in the house. Thanks Heidi, Emily, and the rest of the Bruno fam for saving her for us! We love her!
Creed has been learning and growing a lot, especially in the last month. He mimics everything anybody says so there seems to always be an echo in the room. It's so much fun to see him communicating and talking with us and the girls. He's such a happy baby, almost all of the time. He loves to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and even performed it on camera. The video is kind of long because we videoed both Tiger Lilly and Creed at the same time and don't know how to edit from our Video Camera yet.
We're home at last! We had a great time in Mexico and Utah, but we were ready to come home to Oregon. The slideshow has a bunch of our favorite pics from the trip (assuming Ben figures out how to put a slideshow in the blog!) Will write more soon...
